  • He's sick.
    Do what you can to keep it under 102 and to keep him comfy. The article mentioned above is very helpful.

  • mine had a fever recently.
    if under immediately.

    if not, watch them, use some medicine if you have any for fevers but read the label good to see the weight chart for dosage.

    if it lasts for 3 days, go to a doctor. mine had a temp, bad cough and was cranky. they told me if it lats for 3 days...come in...i ended up going in anyways cause i was paranoid. turns out she has allergies but her fever was gone by the time we got their
